What you'll do

⚠︎We're the new kids in town so check our unbeatable prices⚠︎

Are you looking for an out-of-the-ordinary experience, that also includes Mexican history, food & drinks?

Many people want to visit MXcity but just don't know where to start and it's common to waste vacation time getting lost. We are here to be your Google with sombrero & mustache.

We’ll see +20 top sights, eat a lot and maximize your day.

We start in Guerrero Neighborhood, a non-touristic area but a very traditional barrio, I mean, the real city that most visitors never see. After a typical breakfast at home, we’ll explore the biggest local market where my mom buys the groceries for my enchiladas.

Then, we’ll take the metro (it's safe!) to visit the Revolution Monument and talk about the bloodiest Mexican civil war. We’ll walk through hidden gems (including a special cemetery, and a psychiatric hospital) and take a break to drink pulque (Aztec beverage)

The third part includes a walk through Alameda Central Park +Fine Arts Palace+Latino Tower, and many other landmarks we’ll hit on the road. We'll talk about art, history, and our biggest love failures.

Last but not least: Centro Historico Highlights. Most iconic buildings/squares+tacos+secret bar. Everything explained with our outstanding charisma.

Can any other tour beat that offer? I would say not in this life!

*Vegetarian option available

Hi! I'm Olin, a tourist guide, entrepreneur, and traveler with no other big abilities found at the moment. I’ve lived in the city for the last 37 years, so I know a few good secrets, a lot of its history, one or two decent bars, and way too many indecent ones.

After years of working behind a desk, and a blurry night of mixing tequila and mezcal, I decided to work on my own, outdoors and doing something I discovered while traveling: tours focused on showing the reality of the locals.

I think Mexico City is a monster: sometimes sweet like Mike Wasowski, and sometimes terrible… like Fast & Furious 9. This city can eat you alive, make you spend all your money, or fall into tourist traps. But I’m here for you, so you can suffer all the above, but at least you'll do it with great company!

This is an excursion that will allow you to experience CDMX as only a local can. You will experience the best street food and learn some Mexican History along the way with hosts who add a very personal touch.

Such a great way to explore this magical city by eating your way from sight to sight. Experience the Ciudad like a true Chilango. Olin does it right!!! Highly recommend 🇲🇽😎

This tour way surpassed me expectations! If you have a half day free and want to explore Centro/Zócalo don’t miss this experience. Olín kicks off the tour with homemade tamales for breakfast at his home and it only gets better from there. Be prepared to walk for a couples hours taking in a lot of sights, history, and tacos! We probably averaged at least one taco per hour for ~4hrs. Olín also was happy to help provide info for a Xochimilco visit I had later this week. Even better, he and his partner met my friends and I for a drink the next day and they were just as fun off duty as they was on tour.

Olin and Tania have to be two of the most easy going, knowledgeable, and fun people in all of Mexico City. History. Cuisine. Culture. Art. You get it all AND MORE on this tour. From the get go Olin and Tania will treat you like family, and your new cousins will make sure your day is a blast filled with more tacos than you should probably eat (but you SHOULD eat them all if you can). Absolute gem of an experience and one that will help you start or end a trip to CDMX in the perfect way.

Olin and Tania were a dynamic duo filled with stories, history, and top notch recommendations. They were so accommodating to us arriving a bit late and even checked in to make sure we were okay. Their local knowledge made us feel like we were getting a true experience and not just tourist highlights you might find on other tours. They really make sure you’re having the best experience possible and their hospitality shines through. By the end of the experience, you really do feel like you have new family in Mexico. We loved them so much we met up with them again later on our trip. Cannot recommend this tour enough!

We had 4 in our group. We all highly recommend Olin. He was able to adjust to the needs of our guests that couldn’t walk as fast as most groups. He was super caring and genuine. It felt like we knew him for years. His English is really good and we had a mixture of English only & Spanish only speakers and he did a great job repeating in both languages. We were extremely pleased and hope in the future we can use him again! Best tour guide ever! We tried many different types of tacos and traditional non-alcoholic drinks - super yummy!
